Making new habits

Monday, December 03, 2012

I've read that new habits take a month to form. Over the weekend I saw a post somewhere (pinterest?) that listed some healthy eating habits you should try to create over several months. First, was no fast food. I already barely eat fast food b/c of my gluten sensitivity so I'm going to combine that with the second habit, no candy. So, in December the healthy habits I want to form are no fast food and no candy. I'll report my progress and create a new healthy habit in January. I think breaking bad habits one month at a time will be much easier than trying to go "cold turkey" on all sugars and "bad" foods at once. This candy thing will be a tough one for me but I bet I'll see results if I cut out the unnecessary candy bowl at my desk!

    Sounds like some great habits to have. I never eat fast food and rarely eat candy unless it is right in front of me. So I definitely say the candy bowl must go.

    Definitely the way to go! Lots of luck on the first two and can't wait to hear how it all goes.

    It's hard to give up foods you love. I have that problem with french fries - fast food or made at home. Good luck this month!
